Basic Moves for Cheerleading Routines : How to Use Your Fists in Cheerleading Routines


Hi! I’m Mandy Butler on behalf of Expert Village
and I’m going to talk to you today about cheerleading motions. Now I’m going to teach you the correct
technique for a fist. It’s very important, because if you’ve noticed, I’ve used a fist
in almost every single position that I’ve done so far. When you’re doing motions, you
have to have a nice strong fist. A lot of people make the mistake of having their thumb
inside their hand, so it looks like this. You don’t want to do that because notice the
line I’ve got right here is not very level. You want to have your thumb outside of your
fist. Also, you want to have your fingers balled inside. A lot of people like to keep
their fingers straight, but when you do that and you close it, you’ve got that big hole
and it just does not look as good as nice a big doughnut hole would. When you open your
hand, you’re going to roll your fingers in and you’re going to wrap your thumb around
making a nice strong fist. Also notice that I’m level across the top. I’m not bending
my wrist forward or bending my wrist backward. I’ve got a nice tight fist.
